  • Never leased before and am trying to figure out if I got a good (reasonable) deal. I see the 2013s are much lower but I got a 2014 so I can't tell...

    Negotiated based on vehicle price since that is how I have always purchased cars(is that the way to do it?)

    Anyway fully loaded 2014 MSRP $39,850 (everything but the bling rims)
    negotiated 35,900
    $1500 drive off
    370/mo 36/12k (tax incl.)
    felt high but it was by far the lowest of 8 dealerships I had bidding against each other in LA...

    Seems like there are too many moving parts in a lease, maybe I should have just purchased. We agreed on a $1500 drive off and to get to that number they gave me a 1500 bank rebate off the $3000 drive off listed on the paperwork. How does that work? Should I have gotten that and paid 0 down?

    Feeling like I would rather have just purchased because I think I negotiated a good purchase price but that just increased the residual value if I actually want to purchase later. And since the bank gets the $7500 tax credit it does not make a ton of sense to purchase this at the end of the lease anyway, right?

    Thoughts appreciated!

    So many questions and so much cognitive dissonance.

    Hi kyfdx,

    I'm planning on leasing a 2014 Volt in Southern California and would like the know if the rates are any different here. From the ads I've seen, the lease cash is $2,415 rather than $1,415. Is this a regional thing? And I see there's an additional $1,000 competitive conquest rebate.

    Also wanted to confirm that the 59% residual is for 3 years, 12,000 miles per year. Would 10,000 miles per year be 60% residual then?

    Thanks in advance,

    I only have the national numbers... if a region has extra incentives, I'm not going to have that information..

    If a 10K/yr lease is offered, the residual will be 1% higher than the 12K/yr lease...

  • I am interested in leasing a loaded Volt MSRP of $40,600.

    I have GM employee and a Current GM Lease.

    I am trying to figure out the payments for a 24 month 10k/year lease.

    Can these be had for relatively cheap?

    What rebates am I eligible for?

    Your help is appreciated.
  • Numbers I was given with the premium package and safety 1 in NJ

    $37040 MSRP
    $32950 dealer discount. She wouldn't tell me what that included but I'm assuming the $1000 conquest is in there
    Residual is $21484

    Can anyone backwards calculate that to see what the residual is, and if it's legit?
    She tells me if I wanted 12k miles, 350 a month it's 2300 down. $0 doe. Which is what I want she had me over 400. Tell me this way too high right?
  • That's 58%, which is correct for 36mo, 12K/yr lease

  • You should ask for the details about
    • Lease incentive
    • Capitalized Cost Reduction
    • Adjusted Net Cap cost
    • Residual value
    • APR
    Sales tax %

    and you can use the excel sheet I reference in my post above (#471)

    If I plug your numbers assuming that
    1.07% APR (you really need to find out what the APR is on the lease)
    32950 is the MSRP - dealer discount - lease incentive
    a lease fee of $600
    a sales tax of 6.5%
    To get to $350 including tax with $2300 down, it means about $1200 of upfront cost which is normal.

    But you need to clarify the lease incentive to be sure of the dealer discount. If the lease incentive is around 2400 that would mean an actual dealer discount of only $1690 (4.6%) which is not great you should expect something like 7/8%
  • I was quoted a base 2014 Volt $34,995 sticker price with lease as follows:

    $0 down
    39 months
    10,000 miles

    Is this a good deal?
  • yesterday I was quoted by two dealers of different prices.

    Dealer 1
    36 months
    12K miles
    $900.00 Drive off after state rebate
    $259 a month base payment

    Dealer 2
    4000. 12k miles a year 199 plus tax

    These are both base models
  • Ended up raising mileage to 12,000. Closed deal for $290 per month including tax, no money down 39 month lease. Included first payment in no money down, so 38 actual payments. This was done in Ohio.
  • Thanks for the info. Appreciate the details.

    The one that I am being quoted is 220 with 4k down (1500 credit from state).

    So if I split the remaining 2500 to 36 months it comes around the same price.
  • Hi guys,

    I am a total newbe at leasing cars. I followed one of the advices here and I asked a dealer I am working with for a breakdown of all costs associated with leasing a fully loaded 2014 Volt for 36 months with 15,000 miles/year (I know that's a lot for a leased vehicle, but that's what I have to drive to and from work...) and here's what I got from him:

    Market Value 39,715.00 Discount Savings -3,300.00 Vehicle Selling Price 36,415.00 Document Prep Fee 80.00 License / Title 326.00 Tire/Battery/VTR Fee 8.75 Other Fee 39.00 Acquisition Fee 595.00 Tax on Collected Items 304.73 Total Cap 37,768.48 Down/Cash Cap Reduction -1,082.62 Rebate Savings -2,400.00 Net Cap 34,285.86

    Base Payment 383.80 Monthly Tax 33.58 36 Month Payment 417.38

    Down/Cash Cap Reduction 1,082.62 1st Payment 417.38
    Due On Delivery 1,500.00

    Rate 0.00074 Annual Miles 15,000 Residual % [39,715] 55.3115951 Residual Amount 21,967.00

    Tax: 8.750% 8.75 %

    How would you rate this deal?

    Thank you in advance.

  • So... $1500 upfront and $417/mo.? Seems reasonable for a $39K vehicle.

  • I have a question in regards to leasing. I have discussed with a dealership yesterday and got the final negotiated price of a 2014 Volt down to $29,950 (and paperwork to prove it). That may be the lowest price anyone has gotten for a 2014 Volt on this forums but they seem to be quoting me a ridiculous amount of money for a lease monthly payment. I want $0 down, 12,000 miles/year, 36-39 month lease, $0 due at lease expiration. Based on what everyone else is paying, what kind of lease payment should I really be expecting here based on the final negotiated price. They seem to keep telling me that no one gets the $7500 tax credit because it's a lease. I know that is wrong, the leasing company gets the tax credit and it gets taken off the price for the lease. They are saying they can't put it in the lease to make my payments lower. It seems that everyone else who is getting a Volt is getting that tax credit included in their lease to make the payments lower (as it should). They are quoting me 398-448 a month (based on credit) for $0 down and 36 months. That seems WAY more than what other people are paying. Can someone help me with this? I am new to leasing. Much appreciated!

    I'm located in Phoenix, AZ by the way. Tax rate is 8.3% here.

  • You are correct.. the leasing company gets the tax credit. How they use that credit is up to them. In the case of ALLY, they offer a low money factor, a decent residual and a $2400 of lease cash that the dealer can use to lower the purchase price. They don't give the dealer $7500 to take off the price. I would assume the price they gave you already takes into account the $2400.

    The really cheap lease deals on the Volt were a few months ago on 2013 models.. $400/mo. or so, seems to be about the going rate on a 2014 model. (see posts directly above yours).

  • Quoted today:

    2014 Chevy Volt with Base Cloth interior- $38,xxx (according to dealer) 2 Options only- Heated seats & navigation Negotiated Price- $31,xxx Total money down- $2000 20,000 miles/yr lease $401/month- 39 months (this payment includes the Fed 7500 rebate to leasing comp, tax, tags, everything) Residual- $18,xxx

    I know there is more info needed but can anyone tell me if this sounds OK?

  • Pulled the trigger yesterday on a 2014 Chevy Volt! So excited! It was a base volt with enhanced safety package 1, tinted windows, and nitrogen for life at the dealer. These were my details, did I get a good deal or did I get screwed? MSRP: $35,630 Negotiated Price: $32,760 Taxes/Fees: $1,502 (rolled into lease) Cost Cap Reductions/Rebates: $3,150 Adjusted Cap Cost (Financed Amount): $31,052 Residual Value: $20,655 Money Factor: 1.0% (0.0004167) 36 Months 12,000 miles/year Monthly Payment with taxes: $338

    I rolled all taxes and fees into the loan and only paid my first month payment at lease signing. I really like this car! It's like I'm driving a car of the future! Thanks for everyone in the forum, I used your pricing and figures as leverage!

  • Well looks like you have done a pretty good job! I would say that is a decent deal. You could have squeezed them a little more on a base model. Being that you only paid 1st months payment, that's a good deal. Some people have paid over $1000 at signing and get a payment of $310 which is about equal to the deal you got.

  • Hey all, I thought I would give you an update on some of my first numbers I am getting from a Dealer in Connecticut.

    2014 Volt with many upgraded options MSRP: $39,815 Dealer discounted down to: $38,000 (Below invoice) 15,000 mi 36 Mo $2400 rebate

    $0 due at signing

    $475/ month lease payment $475/mo payment (Seems very high to me)
